He states: “At Ofsted’s request, I have resigned. This is very disappointing for me personally and I hope it will not dissuade others currently working in companies to consider roles with public bodies. I wish to make it clear that this decision should in no way give credibility to the spurious allegations which have been reported regarding GlaxoSmithKline. These are entirely without foundation and have been previously addressed by the company. Rather, it is my desire that the work of Ofsted continue unhindered by negative media attention.”
Point 1 - Why did Ofsted request he resign?
Point 2 - What spurious allegations regarding GlaxoSmithKline?
The Daily Mail broke the story of his appointment, days after this story broke Blackburn resigns. In between, myself and many other bloggers protested against his appointment directly to Ofsted. Many others wrote about it on blogs and websites. This news went global and many people were not happy. Personally, I am pleased of the outcome and hopefully Ofsted can now concentrate on doing what they do best... protecting our children!
